Founded in 2000 by three alumni of TCU’s Department of Theatre and dedicated to promoting creative collaborations and networking, Amphibian links its company members living in Fort Worth, New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles, presenting readings and fully staged productions in Fort Worth and New York.
The company is recognized for its stylistically and thematically varied productions, as evidenced by the plays slated for its 2011 season, which ranged from Steven Dietz’s Inventing Van Gogh to Rajiv Joseph’s Animals Out of Paper to Christopher Hampton’s Treats. Amphibian also hosts a reading series to showcase and develop works by emerging and under-produced playwrights. The company’s roster of guest artists includes Laura Anderson Barbata, Anne-Lynn Kettles, Tom Pelphrey, Kristine Sutherland, and Sebastian Stan.
